Did you remember to turn off / change the time on the intellipark setting ?
The disk may be parking the arm every few seconds...

Yes, I'm going to run some diagnostic tests on the drive outside of Windows.

No, and the jumper only for Windows XP. It just silently bumps up the LBA addressing by one. Windows XP defaults to start on sector 63, so adding 1 gets you 64 which is divisible by 8, which properly aligns the Windows XP partitions for advanced format drives. This jumper trick only works for Windows XP, not for anything else. You can't disable advanced formatting -- it's how the drive was constructed (for lack of a better word).

Besides, advanced format does NOT make the drive noisier, just slower. I'm pretty sure your drive is working as expected. Nothing you do short of replacing the hard drive with a different model will fix it.

I have also read that this might just work for the 1st partition on those drives when used for XP. Since this is a AV drive, that isn't the issue.

I ran WD's Lifeguard diagnostic utility, it passed the short test, but I couldn't even start the long test. It returned an error (0162 the 1st try & 0135 the 2nd try) as soon as I tried to start the long test. I tried a few other programs and they returned no errors.
I contacted WD, they issues a RMA for the drive (2 year old).
I won't know until I get the replacement, but I believe WD's program can't read TiVo's proprietary file system since the other programs did, but I won''t know for sure until I get the replacement.

It's not the noise that was the problem, it's the constant activity.

I received one of those damn "My Book AV" 'things' with a WD10EVDS drive for the exchange. This was "Recertified in Malaysia" no less.
I'll do what I did with the original, open the case, remove the drive and save the interface board and toss that stupid case.
